If you follow THIS link, you will see Arnie Arnesen, a "progressive" talk radio host in New Hampshire, trying to explain to the good people of Britain just how the hell Hillary managed to defeat Obama in the primary.

And, I see that the Brits are just as interested in easy weight loss as we Yanks.
